    THE ETHICS

    The Brand Story

    After making his first backpack whilst studying at Falmouth University, Luke went on to start Penarth here in Bristol.


    Penarth produces sustainably made backpacks, apparel and accessories for the everyday adventurer. All of their products are made in Bristol to the highest standards.

    Waterproof Waxed Cotton

    The outer fabric of our limited edition backpack is a durable waxed cotton. The cotton is grown in the USA and certified by BCI (Better Cotton Initiative), it is then sent to a mill in Pakistan whom our supplier has been working with over the last 10 years and visited several times during this time.


    The wax waterproof's the cotton, so in order to keep it's waterproofing will need to be periodically re-waxed.

    Organic Cotton Lining

    The fabric lining is made from a durable organic cotton. Organic cotton is better for the soil, the farmers and their families due to the damage that can be caused by chemicals used in conventional cotton production. 

    Handmade in Bristol

    This backpack was designed and made here in Bristol.

    Vegetable Tanned Leather Patch

    The leather patch was made using vegetable tanned leather, meaning the hides are dyed using natural tannins free from toxic substances such as azo-dyes, nickel and chrome VI. The raw hides used by the tannery are by-products of the food industry.


    The patch was then laser engraved here in Bristol.

    How can Penarth x Found Hea improve?

    For future backpacks we would like to use an organic cotton waxed outer fabric. BCI certified cotton is helping to improve the cotton industry, organic cotton is known as best in class for sustainable cotton fabric. We would also like to find an organic cotton fabric for our trims.
